General information

EVERY CAKE IS DIFFERENT AND SPECIAL. HENCE, PRICING IS NOT STANDARD, AND WILL BE BASED ON TIME, COST, AND MATERIALS FOR EACH ORDER. The posted prices on It Takes a Cake are for ballpark figures...prices subject to change based on material/supply/labor costs. Please let me know when inquiring about a cake, three things: 1) the date you need the cake, 2) your cake budget and 3) the amount of people you need to serve. Further, pictures of cake styles you like are appreciated to help design your cake. I will do my best to design a personalized cake within your budget. WHEN A CAKE IS ORDERED OR A DATE IS RESERVED FOR YOU -- A NON-REFUNDABLE RETAINER OF $25 MUST BE PAID BY CASH OR CHECK. When I receive and process your retainer --ONLY then is your date fully reserved. THE RETAINER WILL BE DEDUCTED FROM YOUR FINAL CAKE PRICE. In the unfortunate event of a cancellation, the retainer is non-refundable because in reserving your date, I have had to turn other orders away. Concerning large cake orders -- for cakes that are more than $100: the retainer increases to 50% of final price. This is to cover my cost of supplies in the event of a cancellation or no pickup.
